Brentford vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Brentford are hosting Arsenal in the Brentford Community Stadium, London on the 14th of August 2021, Saturday at 00:30 IST. Brentford are part of history here, they are playing the Premier League after 74 years. While Arsenal would be hoping to start with a win against the host riding high on confidence.

Brentford Form and Team News

Brentford have ended the long wait for a Premier League Qualification. They had lost four first division finals prior to this which in turn also prevented them from qualifying also makes this entry much sweeter. They are opening their campaign against fancied English Rivals Arsenal. Brentford’s recent form has been quite good to say nonetheless. They have won six games and lost just two games in the last nine they have played while one game ended in a draw. So we can safely say Brentford is not going to be the pushovers this season given they are able to continue this form into the Premier League.

Thomas Frank in the fourth season with Brentford has already made history by helping them get the promotion into the PL. But his objective in the season could be something more, they would want to replicate the good things that his team have been doing and hope they put up a good showing in the prestigious league. And how better to start off than winning against Arteta’a Arsenal, given Brentford do that, it would be a statement to all other teams in the league as to how dangerous a side can get given they get a chance. 

Arsenal Form and Team News

Arsenal are on the back of a similar story in the Premier League after having finished seventh last time around. They have been failing consistently in the Premier League in the last few seasons. The transition phase that Arsenal finds themselves in seems to not end at all after the Arsene Wenger era and they are in another season with different challenges this time around and starting against a newly promoted side in the first game. They are playing against Brentford and these matches could get tricky sometimes, given the nemesis is riding high on confidence, they would play with different energy altogether.

Arteta has had enough time to get used to a club like Arsenal and it’s high time he translates that knowledge into winning performances and eventually become the league beaters that the Gunners once were. He has a good team at his disposal and once everyone starts playing to their potential, then it would be a whole different ball game. A win against the high-flying Brentford would be the best starter for that matter and the Gunners can carry forward the momentum.

Our Tipster’s Angle 

The recent form can be the best way to highlight the states both teams are in, when one team is struggling to get their consistency going, the other would be on the best possible mindset after having done something that nobody in the recent past have achieved. So basically, Brentford are a team to watch out for in this season. Here, however, Arsenal might wade off their challenge given they have more experience playing on the big stage. 

Tip 1: Total Goals over 2.5

Arsenal even with the form they are in have managed to have a lot of games where the total goals have been over 2.5 goals. All three games that they have played in the leadup to the first Premier League match have had the total goals to be over 2.5. While on the road too, they have had three games in the recent past where the above has been satisfied. The only head to head played between the two sides in the recent past also had the total goals to be over 2.5. Brentford in return have had one of the last two games where the condition was met. So in all likelihood, we can safely say this season opener could well have over 2.5 goals. The odds for that according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.74.

Tip 2: Arsenal total goals over 1.5

Arsenal in the last nine games they have been part has had five games where they have scored over 1.5 goals in total during the match. This includes the friendlies, last seasons’ PL and also the Europa League. Playing as the touring side, they have had three games in the last five where they have scored over 1.5 goals as a team in the match. Four of the last five matches Arsenal played as the touring side in the Premier League also saw them help strengthening the claim for the above condition to be satisfied. Brentford too has conceded over 1.5 goals in one of the last two games as well. So we can expect this game to see over 1.5 goals from Arsenal. The odds for Arsenal’s total goals over 1.5 is 1.82. 



History beckons for Brentford and a win here would just be the best possible tonic for their long journey from here on, while Arsenal would hope to not slip up their chances and eventually get off to a winning start. Summarising on a couple of tips from above:

  1. Total Goals over 2.5 @ 1.74
  2. Arsenal total goals over 1.5 @ 1.82
